Financial Aid and Scholarships

Undergraduate Scholarships

All students are considered for merit and financial aid based scholarships if they apply through the general scholarship consideration process. By February 1 of each year, an email will be sent to the College listserv notifying all undergraduate students to apply for general scholarship consideration via an online form. General scholarship applications are due before 12:00 p.m. on March 1 to be considered for an award. Though a number of general scholarships require specific academic criteria, all undergraduate students are encouraged to apply for consideration.

Graduate Scholarships

All graduate applicants are automatically considered for merit-based scholarships. Approximately two hundred thousand dollars in merit-based scholarships, awards, and stipends are awarded to CoD graduate students every year. Scholarships and awards can range from $8,000 to full tuition. Because financial resources are limited, applicants are encouraged to seek out other sources of funding.

Graduate students may also be considered for some additional funding if they apply through the general scholarship consideration process.
